Joining the Industry-Wide Careers Movement

With 25% of industry employees nearing retirement by 2018, there is a growing need to inspire young talent to join our workforce. That’s why we’re joining the Insurance Careers Movement, an industry-wide campaign that reinforces how insurance hits the career trifecta: it’s stable, limitless and rewarding. Following are a few simple ways that those in our industry can participate, as well as examples of our efforts.

  • Share your career stories. Watch the clip to hear our employees share why they chose a career in insurance and feel a young person could thrive in our industry.
  • Connect with college students. Attending alumni events, speaking on panels and exhibiting at career fairs are great ways to network with students. Look for our booth at the University of Minnesota’s Actuarial Career Fair on Monday, Sept. 26!
  • Join the conversation. What better place to reach young individuals than social media? You can join the Twitter conversation by tagging your Tweets with #CareerTrifecta, and be sure to follow our updates at @OneBeaconJobs!

Celebrating Insurance Careers Month

This month we are teaming up with our industry colleagues to commemorate the second annual “Insurance Careers Month.” This industry initiative unites members of the insurance community to raise awareness of insurance as a desirable career choice. With nearly half of insurance professionals expected to retire within the next 15 years, we realize how critical it is to attract young talent to our workforce. During this month’s awareness campaign, we joined others in inspiring the next generation by sharing intriguing facts, career insights, tips and general information about insurance.

So, why choose a career in insurance?

Opportunity and growth, according to OneBeacon Government Risks’ VP of Business Development Brad York.


Challenge, stability and satisfaction, according to millennial Laura Peterson’s InsureMyPath.com blog. Laura, a member of OneBeacon Government Risks, shares an inspiring story about joining the industry.

A commitment to educating tomorrow’s leaders. OneBeacon is committed to fostering insurance knowledge among students and supporting risk management programs across the U.S. Earlier this week, OneBeacon launched its annual scholarship program, which awards 16 graduating high-school seniors with $2,000 college scholarships for the upcoming academic year. This month we are also attending two college career fairs. Although located in different states, our goal at these events is common: offer career opportunities to tomorrow’s leaders and spread awareness about our industry.
